FOREWORD 



' I 'HE drama of college life is not unlike 
others — its setting is sometimes unattrac- 
ti-Ce; its pla^'ers often pla;^ minor parts; its 
management is not alxCa^'s able to manage; 
its features are sometimes disappointing. 
TKose are tKe phases vjhich the critic or the 
disinterested spectator is likelj* to see, but 
neither is able to comprehend the happiness 
vjhich comes to those behind the curtain. 
Theirs is the jo;9 of being directed in a 
friendlj*, scholarly) manner, of occasionally* 
attaining artistic interpretation, of loiJing 
one's fellovJ pla^Jers, and finallj) of meriting 
the applause of clever, interested patrons. 
It foUovJs that the stage grows greater; the 
pla3'ers troop on and off; each season brings 
2est and enthusiasm. 

' In other things the knox^ling artists maj) 

Judge better than the people; hut a plai) 
(Made for delight and no other use) 
If j'ou approxle it not has no excuse."

Wings 

JJ ings of the Ages — 

Flyhig, soaring icings. 
Floating in spacious dignity in sunlit, cloudless sties; 

Puny, flapping ivings. 
Daring perhaps the treetops ere quivering quickly back to earth; 

Triuinphant, conquering icings. 
Beating the stormy icinds, sprayed by the icild sea foam — 
Wings are they all. 
U ings once iceak and unfledged, 
Each equally helpless to bear 
The iceight of its oicner, to lift him aloft 
From natal valley or crag. 
But Life and the Something icithin. 

Inexplicable, mystical, strong. 
Determining all — thence co?nes the change, 

Strength'ning each to a task. 

t 

Wings are they all — 

livings nascent each icith a flight — 

Long or short, high or loic, only by trial is knoicn. 

Some come back broken and torn. 
Weary with pain, draggled uith dust and icith ?nire; 
Beat on the crags while breasting the storm. 
But they return at last, made stronger by trials of power. 

Others, soaring high, return to reflect 
In their splendour the light of the sun. 

Some Icarius-like are scorched by its rays. 
While some from the valley never venture forth 
And others never return. 

fFings are they all — 

And their strength is measured alone 

By the flight which for each has been set. 



Wings are they all — 
Wings of Life — 
Pf'ings of the Ages.

'29; Math Club, '28. '29; Chorus, '28; Y. AV. C. A.. '28; Treasurer Freshman Class. '27. 

Diligent, pleasant, and acconnmodating is "Denie." Along with her good burner, she possesses 
a high sense of responsibility. She ahvays shows herself worth\' in her undertakings. 

Howard William Barwick, B.S ■ . . Pace, Miss. 

President Student Body. '26; Football. '26; History Club. '29: "M" Club. 

Quiet, polite, reserved. He, whom we shall remember in connection with the college quartette 

and the renovated laundry truck, is dear to us. We expect his many commendable qualities 

to bring him great things. 



Henri Frances Brooks, B.S ■ Marigold, Miss. 

Y. "\V. C. A. Cabinet. '2B; Spanish Club, '28, '29; French Club. '26. '27; Music Club. '27; Accompanist 



Meet Henri I Although you will not know her very well at first, she will later charm you with 
her subtle wit and elusive humor. Even now you can see a twitch in her mouth and a twinkle 

in her eve. 




Senior Class 
A. E. Browx, B.S ■ Pittsboro, Miss. 

Basketball, ■L'll. '27, '2S. '29; Football. '27. '2S; History Club, '29. 

A. E. believes in a big grin and a kind greeting. They tell us to smile and we will get a smile 
back. If this is true, it is certain that he will have to find a big place to put other people's smiles. 

Robert Cogdell Bullock. B.S Shelby, Miss. 

Delta Sigma Phi; Football, '27. '28: Mu Pi Epsilon Mathematics Frattrnity; President Mathematics 

Fraternity '28, '29; Fellowship in Mathematics; Vice-President Student Body. ■26; Vice-President 

Junior Class, ■2S. 

Maybe it is magic or maybe it is personal magnetism, but anyway, Coggie has "it". He is a 
general favorite with the faculty and student bod\'. 

Op.al N. Burson, B.S ■ Tutwiler, Miss. 

Music Cluh, '29; French Club, -28, '29; Sigma Epsilon Literary Fraternity, 29. 

Opal has a great deal of initiative and she is an excellent student in anything that she attempts. 
She will surely reflect glory on her Alma Mater in the teaching profession. 




Senior Class 

Frances Lillian Caffey, B.S Pace, Miss. 

Home Economics Club, '27, ':;8, '29. 

"A violet by a mossy stone," as the old saying goes. We can't have it that you are an old- 
fashioned violet. You are of the newer type with just a dash of the tiger lily. 

Ruth Cauthen, B.S • Camden, Miss. 

Math Club, '27, '28. '29; Home Economics Club, '27, '28; Chorus, '26, '27, '29. 

There's one thing in which she really revels — Math. The fact that her major fascinates her 
is the secret of her consistent success. We'll count on her leading in her chosen field, 

Audrey Cochran, B.S Doddsville, Miss. 

Home Economics Club. '26, '27; French Club, '28, '29; History Club, '28, '29. 

Get Audrey's promise to do something and it is as good as done. They say that dependability 

is a step to intelligence. Maybe this accounts for this trait in our classmate. We like it and 

want her to keep on keeping her promises. 




Ch 



Reba Leon Cowley, B.S Smithville, Miss. 

Basketball, '26, '27, '28; Home Economics Club, '27, '28. '29. 

Men ! This is a secret. Reba is a Home Science major — and how she can cook and sew. She 

even helps our dietician with our table delicacies. She stands out in contrast with many girls 

because of her common sense, genuine, practical ability. 

Alva Elt.ex Daughdrill, B.S ■ Cleveland, Miss. 

Home Economies Club, '27, '2S, '29; Basketball Squad, '27. 

"Still water runs deep." Alva, despite the placid, calm serenity of her surface, is resourceful. 
As this characteristic is an asset to a good teacher, we see success in her work. 



Sar.a Gladys Daughdrill, B.S Cleveland, Miss. 

Home Economics Club. '27, '2,S, '29; History Club, '29: Easkeiball ?quad, '2», '27, '2S. 

Gladys has been at Delta State four years, coming in as one of the original freshmen. She has 
made an excellent record. We send our good wishes with her in the teaching profession.

Herbert Daughdrill, B.S • Cleveland, Miss. 

Basketball, '21). '27, '2S. '29; Captain, '26, '27; Football, '2G. '27: Baseball. '27, '28. '29; President 
Student Body. '2S; Secretary Field Club, '27: "Miss Delta" Staff, '27, '28. 

What will Delta State do without "Uncle" Herbert to illuminate the atmosphere? Pardon — 

Herbert is the college electrician. He has made a splendid scholastic and athletic record during 

his four years at Delta State. 



Gr.ace Beatrice Dendy, B.S. 



Webb, Miss. 

Spanish Club. '29; Basketball. 



When you are with Grace there is no way of feeling blue. She takes every one in with her 

wholesome, optimistic, and happy outlook on life. We hope that as Grace scatters her smiles 

along the way of life that the>' will be as joyfully received as they are at Delta State and will 

bring her the same worthy returns. 

Martha Virginia Feaster, B.S Greenwood, Miss. 



A small package, but containing a feast, as her name implies. This is not a college girl conno- 
tation of the word, but a feast of theories, knowledge, and attitudes culled from her academic 
\vork and college life. 




Senior Class 

Ruth Garrett, B.S Cleveland, Miss. 

Frunuh Cluij, ■•2S. 

Ruth is intellectually inclined, and thus has made 2 splendid record during her four years at 
Delta State. There is no hypocrisy about her. She is just Ruth, a good student, and a good 

friend. 

Zex.a G.arrett, B.S Cleveland, Miss. 

Sfcr-tiiry French Club, '29; Assistant in French and Music. 

Zena has reflected glory on herself because of her "E" grades and her high ideals. She has 
been assistant in the French Department this year, and has been a great success. 

Edna Gorrott, B.S Greenwood, Mi.ss. 

Secretary Student Body, '2(i: Cheer Leader, '26: Home Economics Club, "26; President Athletic 
Association ,'27; Math Club. '27, '28, '29; Basketball, '26, '27, '28, '29; Captain, '28, '29. 

"Jolly Old Ed" is the way everyone thinks of her. She is a good sport through and through. 

As captain of the basketball champions of '29 she played an important role. She has good 

academic qualifications to go with her athletic abilities.

Senior Class 
Dorothy Ham, R.S Leland, Miss. 

Ilomi' Errjiiomirs Cluh, 'SS. '29; Math Club, 'ST. '28, '29. 

A good even temper accompanied hy an excellent intellect and a determination to do the right 
thing — this is Dot. She is always ready to do her part. 

Mildred Ham, B.S Leland, Miss. 

Home Economics Club, 'S?. '28, '29. 

The tidy of the tidiest. A splendid housekeeper. Your years for teaching are surely limited 
or you are destined to be a great artist. 

Vivian Howell, B.S. . . Cleveland, Miss. 

Home Economics Club, '2G, '27, '28, '29; Spanish Club, '29. 

One of our "town girls" who has always stood by us faithfully. "Get 'Viv', she'll do it." Spicy, 
witn, and quite a necessity to our class. Vivian, we wish you success. 




Senior Class 

Willie Fraxk Howell, B.S Cleveland, Miss. 

Math Club, '27; History Club, '29; Varsity Footljall, '26. 

In the future years uhen we read of your successful debates, we shall recall your efforts on 

our first debating team. We believe, "Frank Willie", that your success is assured, because ^ve 

know your native ability for doing things. 

WiLLi.AM AsTOR HuDSOX, B.S • Preiitis, Miss. 

Classical Club, '2.8, '29; Football Sciuarl, '2C. 

A quiet, restful sort of a chap "with a ready fight for his convictions. Astor, ma\' >ou always 
be able to manage your affairs as well as you have this far.

Senior Cla 



Spanish Club, 



Dignity, poise, and intellect. A hearty worker and a friend. She is our Senior President, who 

has spent much of her time getting things done for us. She labored, she pleaded, and she 

fought for us. Her friends are lucky for having her. 



Ethel Lucille Mabray, B.S Sarah, Miss. 

Hous? Chairman, '28, '29; Home Economics Club, '27, '28, '29. 

A combination of sly wit, humor, and seriousness. "You can't bluff us. Ethel. You don't mean 

it when you try to be stern." See, she smiles. We knew she was just fooling. May you have 

all the success in life.

Yes, Miss Mallette, %Ye love you as much as the children of the Demonstration School ever did. 
Your joyous nature is so effervescent that you spread happiness wherever you go. We appreciate 
your efforts and success in carefully editing the "Miss Delta." "ffale to thee, blithe spirit." 

Ja^ies Tho:\ias McKibren, B.S Belen, Miss. 

Basketball, '27; Debating Club, '27, '29; History Club, '29. 

A second Dr. Dohbs. His scholastic work has made him a valuable asset to his class as \vcll 
as to the chemistry majors. May all your life's experiments be as successful as your college 

chemistry class. 

Dorothy McLain, B.S. . . ■ Shelby, Miss.

School, '27, '28, '29. 

"Divinely tall, divinely fair." If we needed a queen, Dot was "it." She seems to fit with her 
golden locks and queenly bearing. Dot has not only excelled in beauty, but has taught in the 
Demonstration School three years. Her scholastic record for the four years is unparalleled. 




Senior Class 
Jess Reynolds, B.S Gloster, Miss. 



A Eubtle combination of beauty, intellect, and soul. Bess has made a splendid college record 
and has served successfully for two years as a teacher in the Demonstration School. The world 

is hers to gain.

An enigma, a Janus nature not easily understood. The thing that everyone understands is her 

quick mind, her power and initiative, and the unbounded possibilities in this intricate one whom 

we have learned to love. 



Homer D. Strange, B.S Ellisville, Miss. 

Math Club. -28, '119; Choru.s. '26. '27, '28, '29; Football Squad. '2(1; The College's Most Useful Man, '27. 

Yes, Homer, we shall leave it to you, for you are the most popular man on this campus. We

Your scholastic \vork has been outstanding and we are certainly glad that 3cu did not decide

Fame. We love you, Tackett.

Pep? I should say! Wit? Well, I guess! Who is she? Wallace! Wallace! The curtain 
IS down on another Delta captain and peppiest girl. Her unbounded pep has surely helped her 
less fortunate classmates to enjoy life more fully. There she goes. Carefree, happy, and over- 
flowing with mischief.

Vice-President Spanish Club

We are glad that the sweetest girl that ne have ever known decided to leave Millsaps and 

come to Delta State. We have never seen her without a smile. Sometimes we wonder if she 

can be made angry. Yes, we know that she can, but think that no one will ever try. Here's 

to her good nature and wonderful personality.

Senior riistory 




Jour years! Brimful of the hardships, ambitions and happiness of 
school life. A Senior at last after this meaningful journey of four 
years, along the road to knowledge. The goal is finally reached, which 
is the dream of every college student. 

it is with a certain degree of pride that we review this school journey. 

The Class of '26 — the original Freshman class — was a large one, composed 
of about seventy members. As this was the first year of our college, then there 
were few upper classmen, and it was almost left to game Freshmen to steer the 
course of our Alma Mater aright. All the Seniors look back with joy at the 
wholesome attitude and the initiative with which this job was tackled. There 
was joy and good fellowship in doing the things to make a name for the college 
and for ourselves. 

Another fall and a number of our group returned as Sophomores — yes, as 
egotistical as the best of them. We found larger responsibilities and duties with 
a new Freshman class which must be helped and for whom we must set an 
example. This year a beginning was made, by some members of our class with 
the help of the faculty, to establish student government in the school. A good 
beginning was made in this work; because we had faith in our ability to do the 
things we attempted. This has been the consistent attitude of the class through- 
out its school history. 

Them Juniors — a little less confident, more sensible, with an understanding 
attitude, we found ourselves starting this important year. Our class this year 
furnished its share of representatives to the student council and the other or- 
ganizations in which students participated. Now the college could boast of a 
Senior Class for '28 — a group who came from other colleges, constituted this 
class. The Juniors, however, shared with them a great deal of the things which 
are the duties of upper classmen. 

With the same fight and determination, mingled with the same happy spirit, 
we approach the culmination of our college course, with about forty in our 
number. It is with a great deal of sadness that we think of our college duties 
as done. 

In bidding our Alma Mater farewell we take on the cloak of the life of the 
world. Here we see the members of our class carving notable futures for them- 
selves in the new life. 

To the succeeding classes we fling the torch of responsibility. Be it yours 
to hold it high!

Junior Class History 



L— ^_JJlME, TIME, turn backward in thy flight, make me a Freshman just for tonight," so 
^ra^^M that I may step upon each stone that the Junior Class has trod upon, and bring to 
^ ^„^^ you a clear picture of the happy life which we have spent here. 

It was in '26 that the Junior Class ventured into this institution of learning which was then 
in its second year. This college has grown as a little child, increasing in knowledge, and broad- 
ening in every way; so has the Junior Class. We were the second Freshman Class ever to 
trespass into the broad fields of this ever-growing college. 

Graduates from all over the state assembled here in '26 as green Freshmen. We came with 
the determination to reach our coveted goal. We have struggled under many hardships, yet 
never giving up, but making our dream come true. Fourteen of the '26 Freshman Class are 
vet working together fulfilling our dream. Many have dropped out, some are distinguishing 
themselves as teachers, some as housewives, and some are working, while others are enjoying 
life as it comes. In spite of those who have dropped out, others have come along, and have 
taken their places so that we are now ihirty-five in number. 

Our Freshman year was made so happy because of the numerous entertainments which the 
upper classmen gave for us. First we had a "get together on the campus," at which time we 
wore our names and addresses pinned on us so that we might get acquainted. That was the 
beginning of our good times. Several parties were given for us, but pretty soon the hard work 
travailed our passage which has not yet ceased. We were good natured and didn't mind the 
hard work, as yet can be seen by our climbing. 

A short time after we gained entrance into this Learned Hall, we assembled in the auditorium 
and elected our class officers. Hal Carnes was hailed president, Eugenia Bachman, vice-president, 
Bill McCain, secretary and treasurer, and Miss Etta Eckles as sponsor. With these mighty 
officers we were on our way for a successful year. 

In June we all said farewell for a happy vacation. In September we returned ready for work 
again. Another time Hal Carnes was elected president, Ellen Cassels, vice-president, and Bill 
McCain, secretary and treasurer. This year we spent working to master our destiny, though 
nothing exciting happened. Once more June rolled around, and for the second time we said 
farewell for a happy vacation. 

In September many familiar faces were again seen on the campus all beaming with brilliance. 
We assembled with more enthusiasm and vigor than ever before, and not one minute has any 
of this evaporated, for we are still working toward our goal. This year Earlyne Lowe was 
elected president, Mildred Williams, vice-president, Lewise Harris, secretary and treasurer. 
This was our best year, and I believe that we have not fallen far short. Let us not forget the 
Valentine party that the Junior Class sponsored. We all had our share of fun, and shall never 
forget that happy evening. 

June is nearing again, at which time we shall pass out the golden gate to return but once 
again, but now may we bid 30U all a fond farewell.

Coach H. F. Zimoski 



This is the man behind all of Delta's brilliant showing and pleasing success. This is his 
first year here, coming from Millsaps at the beginning of the term. During his short stay here 
he has wrought a decided change in Delta's placing, and the limit of praise of Coach Zimoski's 
efforts is far too little. Here's to him, and may he continue to bring success to himself and 
Delta State. 

Captain C. A. "Clm Rose 

Tackle 
A more dependable, more consistent player cannot be found than Cliff. The boys appreciated 
his ability and services when for two successive years they bestowed the captainship upon him. 
He was ever in the midst of the play and was a decidedly important factor in our team's success. 
Our prayer is that he may continue to find success and achieve higher things for many years 
to come.

J. K. "Jake" Methvin ■ Back 

A recruit from A. & M., Jake was an important factor in everv victory of the team and a brilliant 
plaver both on defense and offense. He was always there when the whistle blew and was to be 
found- in every play. His backing up the line en defense was stellar and no other could be found 
to take his place. 

John Joseph "Sugar" Combs . . . ■ Back 

"Sugar" is perhaps the flashiest back his size seen in action on the field. I-Iis brilliant playing 
^von for him loud acclaim and praise of both the student body and visitors. Little as he is, his line 
plunging has seen no equal on the field so far. If he couldn't find a hole lie made one and he could 
aUvays be depended upon to carry the ball in the crises.- A damper was thrown over the success 
of the team when he fractured his leg in his last game and last p:av. His presence and stellar 
playing will be greatly missed on the field next year. 

J. L. "Jimmy Lee" McClelland Back 

"Jimmy Lee" came to us from Holmes Junior College and his addition was sn asset to the team. 
His playing at quarterback was as well as could be expected of anyone. If he continues to succeed 
as he has he will become a thorn in the side of the enemy with his triple threats, passing equally 
as well as punting and carrying the ball. Jimmy Lee has three more years to play and great things 
are in store for him. 

Walter B. "Uncle Walt" Riley • Back 

Uncle Walt's hard hitting, consistent playing was an important factor in the success of the 
season. Carrying the ball on his favorite "off-tackle" plays and showing up well on defense, he 
has proven his worth to Delta State. Great things await him in college, and his after life. 

"Nick" Abdo , . . ■ Back 

Nick is another of the tribe of midgets. His playing, for so little a man, was exceptional. He 
trried the ball, blocked, and ran interference as though he were a veteran of many years, 
/as too large for him to tackle and he could always be depended upon to do his part.

J. Sheldon "Pete" Fortenberry . . ■ End 

Pete's an easv going:, "take it as ic comes" plaver. His playing at end save Delta a well balanced 
line and aided materially in the brilliant showing of the team. 

P. J. "Paul" Holland End 

Ko better mates can be found to pla> the game in concert than Pete and Paul. Paul was a main 
factor in many touchdowns with his stellar playing. He was a wonder at bringing passes out of 
the air and carrying them over the line. He was called upon to make the extra point many times 
and very few of these times has his educated toe failed to accomplish the purpose. 

William D. "Bill" McCain . . . . • Guard 

A tower of strength and a giant is old Bill. Hi.s dogged determination kept nisny of the enemy's 
damaging plays from materializing, and his showing on offense gained a high place in Delta's 
victories. If you want a man with plenty of grit and dependency — pick old Bill. 

Louie "Saint Peter" McGraw Guard 

Saint Peter and Bill formed another combination, like Paul and Pete, that was hard to beat. 
His determination and consistent playing won much applause. Saint Peter was effective on defense 
as well as offense. His work was coupled with that of Sugar's in opening a hole in the defensive line. 

Captain-Elect Harvey E. "Burnie" Burnett • . . . Tackle 

This dumpy, well-built, hard-hitting Charle-stonian exhibited excellent playing at tackle. He 
was a tower of strength on defense and offense and could be counted upon to head off many of the 
enemy's end runs. The players showed their appreciation of Burnie when they elected him as 
captain of the 1929 season. He played the same — a stellar game — in every conflict. 

Harvey "Chap" Chapman Guard 

"Chap" is another recruit from Holmes Junior Colege. He did credit to himself and the team 
with his consistent performances at guard and proved his worth when he aided greatly in defeating 
hia past 'teammates. 




D. W. "Deck'' Jumper Back 

Not a speedier man ever donned a uniform than Deck. Though he did not play regular, his 
playing won him a place in the rooter's heart. He could always be depended upon for long gains 
around the end. His briliant playing at intercepting passes has seen no equal on our field. 

W. B. Hall ■ End 

"B" wasn't a regular, but he could always be depended upon to fill someone's shoes well. His 
playing against Bethel was a bright spot in the defeat. Often he went in at tackle for Burnie. 
We have good wishes for his future success and sincerely hope that he will prove to be an indis- 
pensable player for Delta State next season. 

Charles M. "Charlie" Venuti - Center 

Charlie's the stuff when it comes to playing center. "Whein once seen in action you don't wonder 
at the fame and praise of his high school davs. Charlie is always present at roll call and ready 
to put forth every effort to win. His steadfast playing aided in thro\ying the enemy for losses. He 
has three more years with us and we sincerely wish for him success tn every undertaking. 

Claude Kelly Center 

While not a regular, Kelly showed up well in the games in which he did participate. He had 
dogged determination and will probably mount to success in future years. He can be counted upon 
in an emergency and here's hoping that he will some day do great things for Delta State. 

H. H. Wallace . . ■ ■ End 

A worthy player and a brilliant one is Wallace. He did not play regular, but a better substitute 
for Paul could not be found. Wallace and Pete played almost equally as well together as did Pete 
and Paul. He's an addition from Tate Junior College and we sincerely hope that he will be able 
to play regular from now on. 

Robert C. "Coggy'' Bullock Back 

Co^gy is an old man for Delta and has shown himself to be valuable to the team and college. 
He played with the same consistency that won praise for him in the past. He played his last 
with us and we all know that he will succeed.

Broughton Wade • E.nd 

Wade a recruit from Cleveland High, and plaving his first year of college football, did not show 
up sufficiently to be placed on the varsity, but he shows promise ot being valuable to future Delta 
teams. 

Hal Windham End 

Windham is another recruit from Cleveland High and we appreciate that school's effort to furnish 
us with dependable men, but like "VSfade, Windham failed to measure up to the standards. He's 
going to be valuable to us some day though, and "Ye may lay to that," 

Wayne W. Bagwell • ♦ . . . . Guard 

Bagwell also fell into the unfortunate sciuad, receiving but few chances to get in the game. 
This makes his second year with us and we hope he will spend at least two more working and 
playing for us. 

Sutherland "Sut" Johnson E?id 

^^nother of the abundant supply of ends is "Sut," This is his first year ot college football, though 
he has only one more to play. He shows promise and some day will mount the heights. 

Robert M. Ward Guard 

Big and fleshy. Ward showed his ability well in the few games he played. His weight and 
playing ought to prove to be valuable in future years.

Basketball 



For the 1928-29 season the Green and White girls ivere late in starting their practice. But 
after starting these girls ^vere hard to stop. During the first few days there were as many as 
four and often five teams that came out to practice, but this was soon cut down to three teams 
after the coach picked out the squad. This was a very determined bunch of girls and they 
practiced long and hard for each one had as her goal, the State Championship. From this squad 
there were ten girls chosen to go to make up the team. These ten were: Moranto, Tackett, Abdo, 
forwards; Curtis, Caldwell, Jumper, centers; Ezelle, Gorton, Garott, guards. With the excep- 
tion of Curtis and Abdo, the only freshmen on the team, this team has played together for 
several >'ears. 

The 1928-29 schedule was hard to make up. This was due to the fact that it was laic 
before the schedule was started. There was only one game played before Christmas. This 
first game was with Ole Miss on December 13. The Ole Miss girls came to Cleveland with the 
intention of beating Delta State, but the Green and White girls did not forget the goal that 
they had set out to win, and after a haid fight they overcame the Ole Miss lassies by a score 
of 31-27. 

After the holidays there were just fifteen days for the Delta girls to whip back into form 
before their next hard game. This one was with Millsaps in our gym on January 16. This 
was a very fast and interesting game, but the undefeatable Delta sextette showed up to a much 
better advantage than the opposing team, and another victory was added to the list with the 
score 29-18. 



On Januar}' 19, the girls of the Vicksburg "Y" came here to match their strength with ours. 
But they showed up to a had advantage against the smooth working team of Delta State, and 
likewise they went down in defeat, letting Delta State have a score of 45-27. The first team 
played in this game for only a few minutes, and then the second team was given a chance to 
show that they, too, could reflect glory upon themselves. In this game they were a potent power 
in sending the opposing team to defeat. 

For the last two years Delta State has ventured even further than our own state and has 
gone into Tennessee and played the West Tennessee Teachers. Last year they played Delta State 
three games and won two out of the three. This year the Delta girls were anxious to even 
the score with this college. On January 26 the Teachers come to Cleveland and a thrilling 
game was played with Delta State in favor, the final score being 33-17. This was the last 
game played on our floor and everyone was elated to think that the last game here was easily 
won with such a large margin. 

During the month of February the Delta girls did their traveling. Most of the trips were 
interesting and filled with pleasure from the time the bus left the campus until its return. The 
first trip taken was to Vicksburg. The people were very nice indeed to the squad of the Delta 
girls. To their surprise there were quite a few rooters for Delta State. This game was played 
bv the second team until the last quarter when the coach ran the first team in to give them a 
little workout. The final score of this game was 25-20 in our favor. 

The next day, February 2, the Green and White girls went to Jackson to fight the Majorettes 
on their court. This game turned out to be much more exciting than the game with them on 
the home floor. It was much faster, but Delta State marked up another victory with the score 

35-31- 

On February 9, the athletic eye was turned toward Ole Miss, where the Delta and the Uni- 
versity teams were to meet. The girls had a cross-country with no time to rest and the game 
was called at 6 o'clock. The Delta State girls went on the floor again with the determination 
to win from Ole Miss despite the odds that were against them. When the last whistle blew 
Delta State had won their second game this year from Ole Miss with a close margin of one 
point. The score was 32-31. 

It happened on George Washington's birthday that Delta State's pride was hurt. The sex- 
tette went to Memphis to invade and win from the Tennessee Teachers, but the tables were 
turned and Tennessee put the only defeat of the season on the Delta score book. The ever- 
determined squad, however, fought with a "never say die" spirit in hopes of winning, but fate 
'.vas against them. The score was won by a close margin, 31-29. 

The game that closed Delta State's successful year was the game that decided conclusively 
the contest for the State Championship. This game was with Woman's College. It was played 
on the Mississippi College floor at Clinton. The game was fast, with Delta State consistently 
outplaying the Wildcats, and winning with a score of 38-29. 

This gave the Green and White an undisputed title to the State Championship. 

The whole college and the people who are interested in the future of Delta State feel that 
the excellent shewing of this basketball team of '29 will prove a moving force in establishing 
definite and friendly inter-collegiate relationship. 

In speaking of the undauntable and untiring efforts of the squad itself, we must not fail 
to give credit to Miss Bourgeois, whose enthusiastic and skillful coaching hasi largely determined 
the success of the team.

Coach Burghard had a good bit of success in develop- 
ing a baseball team for Delta. Independent teams all 
over the Delta fell before his charges. One game was 
won and one tied with the Sunflower Junior College. The 
Mississippi College Freshmen were able to take three out 
of a four-game series before the Delta men found them- 
selves and copped the final game at Mississippi College. 
Tingle bore the brunt of the pitching. He played the 
iron man role against the Freshmen by pitching two 
games in as many days, winning the last one. Litton 
captained the team and held down short, with Holland 
at first, Gardner at second, and Hall and McGraw di- 
viding the hot corner. Hyde and Carnes backed up Tin- 
gle on the pitching staff. Burnett, a slugger of ability, 
caught every game. Riley and Daughdrill performed well 
in center and left field with Sharp alternating with the 
pitchers in right.

The CKorus 



The Chorus is one of the biggest assets of the Delta State Teachers 
College. Under the tutelage of Mrs. Carrie B. Frierson, a great many 
students and future teachers get the benefit of training in public school 
music. This training goes far in their work in the schools of Mis- 
sissippi. No school can be a good one without good singing and the 
primary purpose of the Chorus is to instruct the prospective teachers in 
order that they may in turn carry it out to the children of Mississippi. 
The benefits that the state will derive from this feature of Delta State 
cannot be estimated. 

Besides the instructive part of the Chorus, it has been called on 
time and time again to furnish entertainment for the college, for various 
women's clubs, for civic organizations, and for many schools through- 
out the Delta.
